I was surprised to notice on this fish that the belly was quite soft. Any ideas why?

My guess is that its stomach had been bloated and stretched after pigging-out on the overly abundant supply of chum and coho eggs and flesh during the past few months. And now, its metabolism is most likely very slow, and its not eating as much these days, given the cold, water temperatures...

Did you see any stretch-marks on its belly?!?  ;D

If someone says you fish too much, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I am usually at the other end of the camera. As a result I do not have many pictures of fish with myself.

Had the chance to get out on my favourite river with Ian Troupe today.  The weather was great and the fish were active.  Aside from going 0 for 3 on my last 3 fish including a beautiful brown... it was a great day!

Very nice Norm! Is that a tube fly?
